Objectives
1. To derive and manage visibility of asset-human-process interaction in workplaces through the development of an innovative association-based tracking technology 2. To enhance item tracking performance though design and development of physical 'smart asset carrier' (SAC) systems exploiting RFID and sensing technologies to implement the association-based tracking intelligence 3. To facilitate workplace automation and reduce operational error through the development of enabling technologies leveraging the improved visibility infrastructure, such that the productivity of asset-human-process interactions can be increased
